How Does BCV Work? Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation (BCV) or continuous negative pressure cuirass ventilation (CNEP), facilitates normative inspiratory pressure(s) that correct FRC loss by moving the proper anatomy (intercostal muscles and diaphragm) into normal physiological position which “holds open” the chest wall and allows for volume loss, the true source of most respiratory impairments to...

FRC is the sum of expiratory reserve volume...
